PREFACE TO 1920-21 EDITION. 



WE have again diligently and carefully collected and 
arranged useful information regarding Buteshire 
as it is to-day — with its Officials, Householders and Busi- 
ness people — and once more have pleasure in giving the 
compilation the honours of the Press. 

Notwithstanding the strain, economies, and consider- 
able increases in the prices of material, labour and conces- 
sions consequent upon the Great War, we have made 
sacrifices to produce oar Directory as full as formerly — 
and that without any further advance in the tariff. 

As our Advertising friends appreciate the continued 
distribution of their announcements facing the ordinary 
reading matter, with prompt receipt of orders, we keep 
permanent this decided benefit. 

This Directory is not only at hand for reference at all 
times throughout the whole county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the public libraries of Scotland, England, Ire- 
land and Wales, and also in numerous business houses and 
agencies in busy centres ; and we are particularly anxious 
that nothing of benefit to Buteshire be omitted, but that 
all interests have a good show, and everything be brought 
thoroughly up to date. 

[For a number of years we have corresponded, per the 
International Language, with persons in all civilised lands, 
and in our spare pages we again give glimpses of our propa- 
ganda — which we hope will here interest and instruct.] 

Those who wish List of Householders arranged in 
Streets or Districts can get that in the Official Voters' Roll 
— in whole or in parts. 

Our best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and careful vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
continual changes. Notwithstanding the upheavals of the 
great world war, our country as well as the glorious British 
Empire remains intact ; and will, we hope, by righteous 
and strenuous endeavours, recuperate, and be strenthened 
to assist the world to make up for the " years which the 
locusts have eaten" — and are not yet satisfied.

— Bute, the most populous; Arran, the largest ; the Great and Little 
Cumbraes, off the Ayrshire Co;ist; Holy Isle and Pladda, off Arran; and Inch- 
marnock, off Bute. 

The total Area of the County (land and water, exclusive of tidal water) is 
139,658 acres, of which 53,510 are mountain and heath lands used for grazing. 3,806 
acres are under plantations, and 794 are covered with water There are 25,981 acres 
under all kinds of crops, bare fallow and grass, which is a gradual inroad on the 
mountain heath and hitherto uncultivated land. 

The principal Industries are agriculture, horticulture, and fishing The islands 
possess great and varied natural attractions, and are in the forefront as holiday resorts. 

The Population of the County (including its Burghs of Rothk.say and 

Millport) in 1801 was 11,791; 1831, 14.151; 1861, 16,331; 1881, 17,657. In

males and 10,374 females) — being an increase of 255 in the ten years — 24 per cent 

There were 4,270 inhabited houses in the islands. 

For 1911, the figures were as follows :-— 

Males. 

Arran - - - 2,169 

Bute (including Rothesay) 5,081 

Cumbrae - - - 704 

*The increased total issued in the Quarterly Return of the Registrar- 
General compared with the returns lodged with the Sheriff-Clerk,

The Isle of Bute 

IS 16 miles long, with an average breadth of 4 miles. It is rocky in the north and 
south, but fertile in the intervening districts. The climate is milder and more

Parish of North Bute. 

T^HIS is the northern portion of the island of Bute. Port-Bannatyne, its principal 
-* village, is two and a-half miles from Rothesay, with which it is connected by tram- 
way. Kames Castle, in the vicinity, is said to be the oldest inhabited castle in the 
country, and was the ancient seat of the Bantiatynes. The village was named after 
that family — two brothers of whom (John and Gilbert) — received a charter from King 
Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Banuockburn. 

At the last census, the parish contained 449 males and 518 females, total, 1718 
— being a decrease of 88 since 1901, which was an increase of 150 over 1891.

BOOK-KE EPING. 

MR HICGIE'S CLASSES FOR PRACTICAL INSTRUC- 
TION are conducted during the two Winter Quarters — 
October till December and January till March. 

PRIVATE TUITION BY ARRANGEMENT. 

Shorthand will continue to be taught with a view to its subsequent 
usefulness in Business and Professionally. 

In Typewriting" special attention will be devoted to Punctuation and 
Capitalisation — a thorough knowledge of which is absolutely necessary in Practical 
Printing, and cannot longer be neglected by those aspiring to be First-Class Typists. 

Esperanto. — This wonderful International Language is already used for 
Business and Pleasure in all parts of the world. Mr Higgie, being an official of the 
Universal Esperanto Association, is in touch with important regions all over the world, 
and regularly corresponds with persons everywhere — notwithstanding their different 
national languages. 

This auxiliary language anticipates the happy time when there will be ' ' Peace 
on earth and good will to men," which is coming yet in spite of the present times of 
"great tribulation" — caused by covetousness, selfishness, greed, and wanton hindrance 
to peaceful re-construction. The efficacy of the International language in tracing miss- 
ing friends and making new ones was repeatedly evidenced during the past troubles. 

Anticipating the boom in International Trading after the World War, experi- 
ments by means of inter-correspondence in Esperanto are being made by business firms 
throughout the world with eminently satisfactory results. It is not the tyrants but the 
"meek who shall inherit the earth." The blatant, self-righteous and arrogant despots 
have been overthrown. Righteousness is being exalted, and friijhtfuliiess loathed. The 
league of nations is coming, when harmony and good will shall yet reign in spite of all 
present discord and opposition — but not without many sacrifices and much suffering. 
Book-Keeping". — Instruction given in Book-Keeping und other Up-to- 
Date Business Methods. Advertisement Writing is a Present Day Enviable Pro- 
fession, and the ground-work and minutsea have long been familiar to Mr Higgie, a 
practical Printer. 

Messrs HIGGIE & OOY.'S ESPERANTO PUBLICATIONS 
are known, read and appreciated throughout the whole civilised world. Many of the 
contributions are written by up-to-date foreigners.

The Isle of Arran. 

THIS island, the largest in the group, is famous for the grandeur of its scenery and 
the variety of its geological deposits. The island is twenty miles in length, 
twelve in breadth, and is divided into two parishes — Kilbride on the east, and Kilmory 
on the west. The late King Edward and Queen Alexandra spent a very pleasant 
holiday in the island after their Coronation in August, 1902, and witnessed interesting 
sheep dog trials

CHAR MoftheHEA THER 

A SPRIG of SCOTS HEATHER is as lightly thought of at 
hame as a drink of cold water (of which there is more than 
enough to spare), but it is an inspiration and a valued reminder 
of the pleasantest of memories to Scots and their friends abroad. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become ex- 
ceedingly popular among those who work for human brotherhood. 

We produced Victory Commemoration Bookmarks — in con- 
nection with the Armistice, the Signing of Peace and the succeed- 
ing Joy Day Celebrations, — which were considered very appro - 
pria e. 

Remember Friends Abroad. 

While enjoying holidays remember to gather sprigs to send to 
friends abroad, or in response to appeals you will see in leading 
Scottish weekly newspapers. 

We have for years sent boxfulls of heather to friends and so- 
cieties abroad. We frequently respond to newspaper appeals, and 
the following is one of the acknowledgments we received :, — 

East Loudon, C. P., So. Africa, 18th Dec, 1918. 
Mr George Higgie, 22 Bridge St., Rolhesay, Scotland. 

On behalf of the East London Caledonian Society I wish to thank you for being 
so kind in responding to my appeal for heather, which was sold on our Patron Saint's 
Day, and realised the very handsome sum of £265 5/11, and has been forwarded to 
the fund for disabled Sailors and Soldiers The heather was received in first-class 
condition, and was much prized, — Yours faithfully, James Forbes, 

Convener of Heather Committee. 

It is not only Scots abroad that enjoy a sprig of something that actually grew 
at hame. The Glasgow ' Evening Times,' while the above acknowledgment was on the 
ocean, printed the following ; — " Flower girls in Argyle Street are making brave dis- 
play with the mimosa", which comes to us from the Continent before the swallows or 
even the daffodils dare. It is one of the indications, after the shortest day, that 
somewhere the sun is shining, and that winter is waning. Australians in town ar» 
greatly cheered by the golden glory, for the mimosa is the wattle of their homeland, 
carrying with it the same significance as the heather to a Scot abroad." 

Colonials and others on holiday in this country, have thanked us personally for 
sending them souvenirs of Scotland when far away; and others have reciprocated by 
sending preserved leaves and flowers from their distant lands. 

Tht exchange of national floral emblems will yet become exceedingly popular. 
Botanical Specimens, like MSS, can go through the post at paper or parcel rates.

With a view to this scientifically-evolved and easily-acquired Lan- 
guage becoming the means of intercommunication after the War, 
business people in several countries are satisfactorily preparing for 
" the good time coming." Britons learned Esperanto sooner than 
they could the Russian alphabet, and foreigners acquire a fluent 
use of Esperanto long, long before they can understand our words 
and the fickle and changing sounds of the letters of our adopted 
alphabet.

THE BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY 

This Directory now-a-days contains the information dis- 
tinctive of both the Directory and the Almanac of past 
years. The Bute Directory, although very useful to the 
fluctuating visiting population, is not necessarily a fine- 
weather publication, but a hardy permanent annual. 

Our aim, in this publication, is not to record the passing names 
and achievements of visitors and those who come to cater 
for them, but something of far greater importance — the 
registering of the names, standing, and businesses of the 
resident population — for the information of all having an 
interest in Buteshire, its burghs and rural districts. 

The Directory is, of course, not only for the remaining por- 
tion of the year in which it is issued, but continues the 
only printed reference book for the county of Bute until 
its successor appears. 

One edition of the Directory is no sooner off than we begin to 
note alterations (and prepare for possible additions) for 
the next — so that it may be thoroughly up to date. These 
alterations and probable additions lie at our office, and are 
at the service of our customers 

Will Secretaries of societies, etc., connected with Buteshire, 
who do not already do so, please remember to forward 
to us particulars of their institutions, annual reports 
and lists of office-bearers, as information for the next 
issue 1 

This Directory is not only found all over Buteshire, but in the 
libraries and other places of public resort in "the adjacent 
islands of Great Britain and Ireland."

LA LINVO_INTERNAIA. 

This international language, ESPERANTO, having emerged through 
indifference, ridicule, opposition and rivalry, and its practical useful- 
ness been repeatedly demonstrated, some information regarding its 
present position may not be uninteresting to the general public — for 
whose benefit it is intended, and that fact is proved wherever tried. 

Esperanto Congresses have been held annually since 1905 at Bou- 
logne-sur-Mer, France ; Geneva, Switzerland ; Cambridge, England ; 
Dresden, Germany; Barcelona. Spain; Washington, U.S.A.; Antwerp, 
Belgium; and Cracow, Polish Austria. The ninth met in 1913 at 
Berne, Switzerland; while the 1914 Kongreso would have been held 
in Paris but for the intervention of the world war ; and Bonnie Scot- 
land was fixed for the 1915 rendezvous. The world-war prevented, 
arid we are purged from the subtle and arrogant military hatred, greed, 
'• kultur," and " {rightfulness ; " but the set-back will, in time, be 
overcome. Humanity shall yet see the Sun of Righteousnes arise with 
healing in His wings, and the promised peace on earth and good-will to 
men shall reign "where'er the sun doth his successive journeys run." 

These international assemblages have increasingly led, and in the 
future will more and more increasingly lead, to post Congressional 
Excursions throughout the land chosen for the annual rendezvous. 

Besides these annual international Esperanto Congresses, there are 
national gatherings in many lands, and local social meetings galore. 
The young and vigorous Universala Esperanto Asocio have also an- 
jaual Congresses: the first was most appropriately held in Europe, but 
in America it simultaneously had a demonstration. The Universala 
Esperanto Asocio is a thoroly practical institution. Through its very 
widely circulated newspaper, and its delegates, vice-delegates and 
sub-delegates, consuls, Esperanto offices, enterprises and associations 
represented in many cities and towns of different lands, it manages 
departments for scientific research, and the many forms of business and 
social intercourse among the inhabitants of all nations. Besides these 
rapidly growing activities, there are the organisations of the individual 
national societies, with their hundreds of periodical publications and* 
translations of standard works into the key language — which anyone 
may understand and enjoy. 

Annual meetings of Esperantists have been held in many countries 
during the Great War, at which sam-ide-anoj from other lands were 
welcomed, but no Internacia Kongreso was held since 1915 — when, at 
San Francisco, in connection with the opening of the Panama Canal, 
the Tuta Pacfico became La Tu'a Mondo Kongreso. The next Con- 
gress—the 12th — will be held at the Hague, in August, 1920. 

The country (£.«., France) whose language is adopted for interna- 
tional diplomacy is leading in its propaganda of this language--the com- 
mon and direct bond of reciprocal communication between all willing 
members of the human family.

the first to have a national guide book [" Belega Skotlando"— 2d] printed in it, 
and that publication was written and printed in Rothesay. The following two pages, 
in English and the " key" language, form the post-war preface to "Scottish Scenery" 
— " Skotlanda Pejzago,"ls, — also a much-appreciated booklet, and containing typical 
views fram photographs by Messrs Valentine & Sons, Dundee.

IN RE-CONTRTJCTED and DEVELOPED HUM\N RELATIONSHIPS 
after the Great War the British Home and Colonial Prime Ministers have 
recommended, as a foundation on which to build, an acknowledgmentof the 

FATHERHOOD OF GOD. 

The intellect and aspirations of men have, by covetousness,) usurpation and 
force, led to disaster. The Gospel of the Giace of God was a stumbliag-bloek 
and foolishneses to the self-righteous and worldly-wise, but where it has had a 
fair chance it has proved pre-eminently the best solution of the problems which 
are exercising the minds of right-thinking men and women everywhere. 

Human beings cannot all be the same size, build, sex or complexion, and they 
need not be the same intellectually or spiritually. Why should there be a desire 
for some to tyrannise over others 1 The Great War has resulted in righteous- 
ness repelling a scheming lust for power, which, though beaten, is neither yet 
repentant nor abhored. A recrudascence must be guarded against. Righteous- 
ness seeks for peace, and more than Christains believe in the good times coming 
among the different races of mankind. Why should not the nations act in har- 
mony like the members of the human body or a well-balanced choir? In a first- 
class nation there are sailors, soldiers and airmen. On land, for protection, 
there are specially trained infantry, engineers, artillery and cavalry — each with 
distinctive arms, accoutrements, drill and modes of operation. Then there is the 
first line of defence — the navy — on and under the water, and the wonderful air- 
men. Their differences rightly controlled, each works for efficiency and complete 
success. Discord would be ruinous to all. It was by putting aside differences 
and working in harmony that the allied nations secured victory. There is much 
to be done yet in order that the human family may benefit by its deliverence 
from the terrors of frightfulness. The splendid work falling within the scope of 
the League of Nations reminds one of what Bunyan's man with the muck rake 
didn't see. To bring the nations together in amity, and be kept in harmony, an 

Iio.terio.a/tiorioil JLiang-uLa-g"©* 

is required. It isn't desired that any nation give up its identity, form of govern - 
ment or language. There is so much that the human family has in common that 
national characteristics need be nothing more than a pleasing distinction. 

The exclusive Chinese, whose language and literature extend away back into th« 
distant past, have adopted the European alphabetic system of writing —to make 
their language more easiy acquired and useful. 

There are many languages in the world, but none are suited for international 
purposes without an overhaul — and what language would submit to that ? 

The English language is not an original one, but a vigorous growth assimilated 
from others. It is claimed that it is not only a language but a history. True, 

Zep., ii», 9. Zech. tiii., 23, 



*» 



Dut though clever people can tell the pedigrees of its words, the spelling (in con- 
sequence) makes them nearly as difficult to comprehend as the old Chinese. 

There is one lan^unge compiled from others like the English, but it is treated 
scientifically, and being simple, phonetic, logical, regular and up to-date, is very 
easily acquired. Though young, it is spoken and written in every civilised coun- 
try in the world. It is as free and refreshing as the pure air of heaven which we 
breathe, and is acquired as by wireless telegraphy It is not attracted by bom- 
bast, but by sympathy. It imposes no conditions, and interferes with no nation's 
affairs, but seeks to promote a perfect understanding. By the nations adopting 

*&- ESPERANTO "St 

as an auxiliary language, each would possess the same key to understand all the 
others, the tedium of translations would become unnecessary an international 
congresses, the whole world would realize that they were kin, harmony would 
prevail, and the human race become happy ever afterwards ! 

Work aud Pray for the Good Time Coming. 



After the 3rd International Esperanto Congress — at Cambridge 
England, in September, 1907, — the members had excursions to 
London, Scotland and Wales — each full of interest, and long to be 
remembered by those who took part in them. The coming " World's 
National Anthem," ^"Estintaj Tagoj," — "Auld Langsyne,") was sung 
(in Esperanto, of course), at the Congress, before dispersing. While 
enjoying a pleasure sail in one of the many pleasure steamers round 
the Island of Bute, the " samideanoj " from other lands had the great 
delight of singing this Scots song in the original Doric tongue, in which 
it was composed by the Poet Burns in the 18th century. The Scots 
words were printed by means of Esperanto letters. The music was sup- 
plied by a band aboard, and the chorus, particularly, went off with a "go"' 
which astonished the Scots. (Very few knewth at the song had been 
sung at the Congress —in the lingvo interncia). This is not the only 
Scottish song translated into Esperanto. Not to go outside the limits 
of these 70 visitors, representing eight nationalities, they heard " Sweev 
Rothesay Bay'' sung while admiring that beautiful scene, and were each 
presented, by Mr Geo. Higgie, with a picture post card, on which was 
printed, in Esperanto, a translation, by Mr Ernest B. Smith, M.A., 
Glasgow, of the well-known eight lines beginning — " It's a bonnie bay." 

These "alia-land-anoj "only touched at three places in Scotland, viz. 
Edinburgh, Glasgow and Rothesay. They were heartily welcomed. 
No one in the happy party was looked upon as a foreigner, tho' most 
had never been in Britain before, few of the southrons had been so far 
north, and the pronunciation of the Gaelic place-names was a puzzle 
to all. Another pleasant feature of tnis enjoyable " ekskurso," was a 
competition as to the best pronunciation of the word "Tighnabruaich," 
(a pier called at in the circumnavigation of Bute), by means of Esper- 
anto letters." After the visitors had returned to their native lands, 
several, in expressing special thanks for the courtesies extended, took 
occasion to write that the original words of "Auld Langsyne" were 
still ringing in their ears. 

The 11th International Esperanto Congress was to have been held 
in Paris in 1914, but the Great War prevented its proceeding; the 
11th, fixed for Edinburgh, in 1915, took place, at San Francisco, 
in connection with the rejoicings at the opening of the Panama Canal ; 
and, after Peace has again come, the 12th is to be held at the Hague 
this August. — 1920.

The Popularity of 

Higgie's Scots Publications 
Abroad. 

Typical letter received in pre-war days : — 

Montreal, July 29th, 1913. 

" I was sh own a copy of your publication, 'Bonnie Scotland's Resorts, 
while up country, and am desirous of possessing a few of those interest- 
ing books ; so realistically depicting places I have visited, and ' brither 
Scots.' . Kindly inform me if such can be procured in this country or 
U.S.A., and, if so, where? I would not mind going 500 or 600 miles to 
get a few of your small books— so full of interest to the fellow Scotsmen 
I come in contact with here. . . The party who showed me their cop y 
had it for years . I shall be glad if you let me know if you issue other 
Publications along the same lines as the ABC 'Resorts of Scotland." 

Messrs Higgie & Co., Rothesay 

"We are now preparing a post-war edition. 

Generous Terms to Scottish Societies throughout 
the world 



These Publications are appreciated by intelligent persons outside 

Scottish connection, and we sent, direct from our head office, 

copies of Bonnie Scotland's Resoets, &c, 

to the Red Cross Hospitals In Scotland, 

giving a welcome to the brave Sailors and Soldi? rs who had been 
fighting in the Great War for Peace on Earth and Good Will to 
Men, and we received many thanks for our consideration. 

One never knows the good received in unexpected quarters. A 
Scottish soldier, while in an Egyptian hospital, " swapped " 
something with a fellow patient for a booklet on Pitman's !>hort- 
hand. He learned the art, introduced it into the British Army, 
and presided at the Glasgow celebration of the inventor's centen- 
ary—when he indicated the wonderful success of his innovation.

Peace on Earth and Good "Will to Men. 

There are l,5oo, 000,000 Human Beings in the World, 
Speaking over 6000 Languages. 

and Professing Thousands of Religions. 

More than Christians believe that la Homaro vivos kunfratare. 

THE GREAT CREATOR OF ALL made of one blood all races of Humanity on 
the Earth, and when we fell from the high estate in which we were created by 
our disobedience, Jesus Christ redeems us, his Gospel of " peace on earth and good 
will lo men'' is to be preached to every creature, and " the gates of hell shall not prevail 
against it." The confusion of tongues at Babel is being followed by the gift of th« 
perdct language foretold by Zephaniah. The walls of Jericho fell before the sounding 
of the rams' horns atthe command of Joshua, and the lingual walls which have hither- 
to divided the nations, need no longer, through the genius of another Israelite, prevent

Esperanto, like English, is made up from other languages : its roots are taken 
from the same jungle, but scientifically treated in a garden pro bono publico. 

The 11th Annual International Congress was to have been held in Edinburgh in 
1915, but the Great War, which prevented the holding of the 10th at Paris the previous 
year, «as the means of causing the transfer of the 11th to San Francisco. To com- 
memorate the opening of the Panama Canal a- big Exhibition was held there, and a Tuta 
Pacifika Esperanto Kongreso developed into the 11a Tuta Mondo Esperanto Kongreso. 

The l^th Kongreso Internacia is being held in Holland this month, and Scotland 
is to be similarly honoured soon. 

Esperanto — the language of peace on Earth and universal brotherhood — is steadily 
spreading. It is much easier to learn and comprehend than any national language, and 
does the work of all. On the Continent during the Great War it was an incalculable 
blessing to Red Cross work and tracing the missing. It was a veritable open sesame 
into everything good. The world-wide Boy Scout movement has taken up the study 
of la kara lingvo. It would doubtless be used at the great Jamboree in London, a 
meeting so happy and harmonious that it was appropriately closed by the singing of 
Auld Langsyne. Esperanto is more easily learned than alphabets of some languages 
and as it has no politics, religion, or physical force or selfish aims of any nation, but 
is pre-eminently pro bono publico, is peculiarly fitted for cementing and making per- 
manent and happy the coming league of nations.
